"recently spoke as follows about adver

thing as a poster, dodger or handbill
-u pian ior nttcen years has been to buy
so much space in a newspaper and fill it
up with what I wanted. I would not
give an advertisement in a newspaper of
400 circulation for .',000 handbills oi
posters. If I wanted to sell cheap jewelry
r run a lottery scheme I might use po
crs, but would not insult a decent read
ing public with handbills. The class of
people who read such tilings are pc.or
people to look to for support in mere: u
tile affairs. I deal directly with the
publishers. I say to him: How long
will you let me run'a column of matter
in your paper for -f 100 or $200, as the
ease may he,' I let him do the figuring,
and if I think he is not trying to make
more than his share I give him the copy.
I lay aside the profit of a particular line
ot goods for advertising purposes. The
first year I laid aside and spcr.t 4.000;
last year I laid aside and spent 4;000.
I have done better this year, and shall
incrcas3 that sum as the profits warrant
it. I owe my success to newspapers, and
to them I shall freely give a certain profit
of my yearly business.

The Ice Harvest.
The ice packers are now reaping a rich
harvest from the bosom of the Old Mis
souri. The ice is of an excellent quality
from lo inches to 22 inches ia thickness,
and as clear as a crystal. There are from
30 to 40 teams and 70 to 7" men kept
busy from early to late, and tli2 way they
haul out the frozen liquid is a caution.
Our first visit this morning was to the
ice field of F. S. White, where we found
many busy men. Mr. White informed
us that he would store from 200 to
3000 tons for home consumption; and
that he had been in the business for fif

of tons. Mr. White has had 31 men and

Tram ) I a:; tin; n I'orcst.
Tho count of Monte Cristowas the first
to suggest tho practicability of trans
planting full grown forest Inn lie
has followers now in Indianapolis. A
primeval forest east of the city is lxing
removed lioughs, trunks, roots and all.
Col. Johnson last summer erected a
dwelling on the ojeii ground near his
garden, this side of Irvington ; the sun's
rays lat down on that house blisteringly,
uiid the colonel concluded to protect it
with treew. One Bunnell was found who
declared he could transplant an adjacent
forest to tho colonel's yard. Tho trees
vary from ten to eighteen inches in
diameter. Bunnell rigged up a stout
wagon, fastening to the hind wheels an
immense lever, forty to fifty feet long,
thick and strong. This was lashed at
one end to the wagon. Around a tree to
Ijo removed ho dug a trench, the radii
being three or four feet. On ono side ho
dug a twelve inch trench close to tho
tree, and into this trench ho backed his
wagon wheels with tho erect lever. Tho
lever then stood parallel with the trunk
of the tree, and the two were lashed to
gether, boom-fashion. As far up as tho
tree trunk was stilf the lever would bo
tightly fattened, giving one solid, un
yielding leverage. From tho top of tho
logs thus boomed a ropo was run around
a pulley fastened at the surface of tho
ground 100 feet or more from the tree.
Teams hitched to the end of the rojHj
could then with ease uproot tho tree with
a large quantity of earth and roots at
tached. When thus uprooted it would
be on wheels and easily movable, held
steadily from roots to tip. Tho success
of the work on the Johnson place ha3 led
to the removal of many large trees on the
north side. The process is believed to
be of no harm to the tree's life. How
ever, spring will reveal the sequel. In
Paris Picture Marlret.
Never, probably, in the history of Paris
has tho picture market been in so de
pressed a state as it is at this moment.
A few great artists, like Bougureau,
Meissonier, or Benjamin Constant, find
ready purchasers for their work at very
high prices. But the rank and file have
the greatest difficulty in making loUi
ends meet. If the import duty on pict
ures for tho United States were removed
American amateurs would probably come
forward in increased numbers, but until
then there seems little hope of any im
provement. As an illustration of the ex
isting depression may be mentioned tho
result of 'the sale, after death, of tho
works belonging to M. Jacquinot, the
artist expert, which has just come to an
end at the Hotel Diout. Two thousand
pictures put up to auction only produced
21.000 francs, or .840, being an average
of sixteen shillings per picture. In some
cases two or three canvases together were
sold for five francs, and not a single work
realized .20. Galignani's Messenger.
Superior to Cremation.
J. G. Meyers, a young inventor of
Washington, has invented a plan which
he believes to bo superior to cremation,
burial, or any other ancient or modern
method of treating the dead bodies. The
new mausoleum and safe deposit for
tho dead" is tho name of this new con
trivance. Mr. Meyers' plan may be re
garded as a compromise lietwecn tho two
extremes of interment and cremation. In
a fireproof building spaces will e providt d
just large enough to hold a single coffin.
When a coffin with a dead body is placed
in one of these tho door of the apartment
is hermetically sealed. Running from
these apartments are tubes which bring
air into the dead rooms, and also carry
it downward by a forced draft to a cen
tral furnace below, where are consumed
all gases and fluids escaping from tho
bodies. Dead bodies treated in this man
ner, will in a short time, it is claimed,
become naturally preserved, or dried,
and so remain. Chicago News.
Taken at an Advantage.
A Philadelphian saw a club footed man
under the influence of liquor, and kindly
assisted him to the house where he said
he lived and rang the door bell. "When
the door opened two young women, who
had evidently been expecting him, caught
him without ceremony, threw him down
in the entry and, while the elder sat on
him, tho younger deliberately set about
unscrewing the only leg that appeared to
be sound, but which proved to be arti
ficial. After detaching it she marched
off with it, with the remark: "There,
you fool ; I'll put this away where you
won't get it in a hurry, and may be you'll
stay tober when you have to stay in tho
house." It turned out that the only
means of preventing an over indulgence
in liquor was to deprive him of his arti
ficial leg, which was a substitute for a
natural malformation. Chicago Herald.
Scaring Off a Tramp.
A little 10-year-old girl inLatrobe. Pa.,
was alone at homo when a vicious look
ing tramp came to the door and asked for
something to eat. Although frightened,
the child told him he could not have any
think, as everything had been eaten up.
At this the tramp stepped into the hall,
saying that "he guessed he would stay
awhile." The quick witted child calmly
said: "Well, we'll see; I'll ask my papa,"
and went into the back room for a minute
as if to speak with him. Returning, she
found that the tramp had 6teppeel outside
again and was standing looking in. She
walked boldly up to the door and said:
"My papa says you can't stay and must
go, so go!" and she slammed the door in
his face and locked it. Chicago Herald.
Tho Japanese Can't Swear.
Col. George P. Bissell, of Hartford,
Conn., spent last summer in Japan. The
most remarkable feature of that country,
he says, lies in the fact that its language
contains no profane or blasphemous
words. "lean readily underst:uid," he
remarks, "why the practice of 'hari-kari'
is so common in Japan. When a man is
abused or loses his collar button and is
mad all the way through, so mad that
his very soul boils within him, if at such
time he is the victim of a language which
will hot let him vent his rage even in the
mildest epithets, . why then I can readily
see how suicide might lie a soothing re
lief." Jfew York World.
